Mr. Peter Benson who is the project leader for the ISO 8000 data quality also commented on PiLog’s release by saying, “In its implementation of the international standards for master data quality ISO 8000-110:2009 PiLog has shown itself to be a leader in data quality and data portability.

Master Data is the data that identifies and describes individuals, organizations, locations, assets, goods and services, essentially the goodwill of any organization. Companies trying to manage their costs, reduce their inventory, rationalize their suppliers, improve the efficiency of their operation or improve the market visibility of their product or service all need to be able to rely on the quality of their master data. From day to day management through plant expansions as well as mergers and acquisitions, master data quality is a critical component of every business.

This division specialized, since 1978, in the supply of Asset Management Information Systems and Cataloguing Solutions. PiLog delivers mature, feature rich web-enabled software solutions for master data management across continental boundaries and in multiple languages for the medium and large enterprises.
